Coffee Table

I got this table at a yard sale, it was marked $5.  I was employed by the
group throwing the sale and received it for half off. It just happened to
be after noon when everything became half off to the public! Yeah,
I got it for $1.25

I knew immediately upon seeing it what I would do with it. A bench for
the foot of my bed. I got it home, and just like that changed my mind.
I thought it'd make a great space where the grand kids could eat snacks
and do art work, even sat while playing games or watching cartoons.

I went to Walmart and bought vinyl fabric, it's durable and can easily be
wiped off. I don't think I even bothered to sand this piece. I spray painted
it and covered the top. Lately, I've been thinking of removing the fabric
and repainting the table a different color. This is what it looks like today!
Table 1.25
Fabric 4.00
Batting 2.00
Paint & Foam on hand
Total of $7.25
